Celebrating the grand opening of the new Water Treatment Plant in Fort Chipewyan, AB

Fort Chipewyan WTP Opening

Members of our staff were in attendance for the grand opening of the expanded Fort Chipewyan Water Treatment Plant last week in the northern Alberta community. The event was well attended by municipal, provincial, and federal government officials, as well as local residents who will directly benefit from the improvements in the local water infrastructure.

Steve Justus served as the project manager and was responsible for overseeing the construction of the $37 million water treatment facility. He tells us, "Due to the plant’s remote location, the project relied heavily on the logistics and planning stages, especially during the winter road season."

Associated Engineering has worked with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo for many years, including upgrading the original facility in 2008, conducting a conceptual feasibility study and a pre-design report for the proposed upgrades of the Water Treatment Plant and raw water transfer main upgrade.
